Consider the location and facilities

As with so many hotels there are good and bad points. Let's take the positive first. The rooms are excellent: extremely comfy beds and swish surroundings. The blinds are very effective and block noise as well as light. There is also a blind which can be lowered to shut out the toilet area for a bit of privacy. The toilet cubicle is a somewhat small and the shower needs to be approached with caution as it has four horizontal jets in addition to the usual. Room cleaning is good with replacement towels and bath robes each day, although cleaning took place quite late in the day where we were, at about 4 pm. Breakfast is superb with fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juice along with all the usual cold meats and cheeses and hot options too. Toast and pastries, all variations on coffee plus options for teas of various kinds. We requested and got a 'sea view' but don't get too excited as there are several hundred feet of concrete plaza and conference rooftops between you and it. We were on Floor 12 and I guess the higher up you go the less you will see of the concrete bits, which is why you pay more! Getting to the negatives now, allow ten minutes rather than five to reach a beach. Sunbeds and parasols are 6 euros each - a bit pricey but unavoidable as it was very hot when we went. The hotels two pools were a bit of a let-down. The one on Floor 3 is tiny - a triangle about 3 metres per side - and it only gets sun in the morning. We sat there one afternoon but you have tower-blocks on two sides and a view to the sea on the other. Not terribly relaxing with the street noise permeating upwards. Up on Floor 23 a long narrow pool enables one or two people to have a half decent swim but no more than about a dozen people can lay in the sun. Get there early or plump for the beach. As others have said, the lifts can be a bit temperamental and a ten minute wait is possible. We knew in advance that although 'Internet' is advertised in the rooms this is via cable so no use for the smartphone/tablet users. Wifi is only available in the lobby and on the mezzanine where you can use a computer and printer free (useful for the on-line check-in for the return journey). The hotel is really aimed at the business traveller as the conference centre is next door but when we went there were clearly holiday-makers in the majority. If you don't mind the short walk to the beach then the hotel's location is not bad for what we had in mind: a bit of beach and a bit of sight-seeing. The transport system is integrated with the tram and metro within 3 to 5 minutes walk. The tram isn't that much use as it doesn't reach into the heart of the city but the metro is good with one serious reservation (see below). We thought the Target 10 tickets were brilliant: for about 8 quid you get 10 trips on metro, bus or tram (and the overground I think but we didn't use that). Even better, if you hop from one to the other within a short time (check but I think it's an hour or so) this counts as one trip. We didn't manage to use all ours, hard as we tried! Location too gives you access to the Diagonal Mar shopping centre next door with an excellent 'food court'. We strongly recommend La Tagliattela Italian restaurant: good food and very reasonable prices. If you have room for a sweet, stroll indoors to one of the several ice cream parlours. One final word of warning about Barcelona: everyone we know, even the guide books and the taxi driver from the airport, warned us of pickpockets. Despite what we considered to be our precautions and vigilance we managed to get an expensive mobile phone stolen on a crowded metro. We met another family on the way back who had had a handbag stolen in a cafe. The hotel provides a free safe in your room and we certainly used that but you are most vulnerable in crowded places: metro, shopping centre, beach, anywhere in fact where you are likely to be off your guard. Do be wary of anyone talking to you unexpectedly (our incident we think involved a distraction). The advice would seem to be don't take out anything you don't need, don't have anything valuable in your pockets and put what you do have in a bag which you carry in front of you. I'd add, be prepared for a worse case scenario and have, back at your hotel, numbers of cards and numbers you would need to contact to cancel cards or block your phone. None of this of course is a reflection on the Barcelona Princess. A good hotel with much to recommend it - just check the location and facilities suit your needs.

Fantastic place

Wow what a fabulous place.hotel is situated at the top of amrey Diagonal and next door to the shopping mall which was brilliant.Bus stop outside the door to the centre of town for €1.90....Views from this hotel were amazing with the rooftop pool to cool you down .Rooms were like a mini suite with free mini bar and full length window in the bathroom to watch the city while you take a soak. Staff were very friendly giving us maps for barcelona.Lift is cool also as it is glass and you can see everything as you go up and down. Overall a fab place and will definetly return

The best thing about my stay was...

the views were to die for

Very clean, contemporary hotel - would recommend

This hotel is very good vaue for money, it is very clean and rooms are made up daily and has a free mini bar! The only problem is it is 15 mins on the tube outside of the city centre so you tend to waste a lot of time travelling in and out if you want to clean up or simply leave shopping bags back to the room. (probably why the price is so reasonable) The breakfast is buffet style and is superb for bread, fruits etc but the cooked part of the breakfast was a little disappointing as the bacon is like wafos ham (very undercooked) and if you don't like scrambled egg you will probably have to purchase breakfast elsewhere. The staff are really nice and gave us a complimentary upgrade to a suite, would def recommend if you want to use the beach.

The best thing about my stay was...

Cleanliness and suite view of both sea and city

Hotel ok, staff friendly, pools a dissappointment

Stayed in late Sep-10, City & weather fantastic. Hotel ok as a base but a bit more than the 3kms advertised outside of the centre. We stayed on room only after reading previous reviews. Lots of bars locally to get good breakfast, would recommend going to the food market off Les Ramblas as atmosphere excellent at breakfast time. Pools and facilities a big dissappointment and not very clean. Room on 25th floor was ok and good view of the city, it was clean but a bit small. No bath but decent enough shower. Not at the upper end of 4 star hotels but ok as a base. There is a fun fair outside the hotel on the beach side and views of the beach not great and it was noisy at night on that side. if you want the best restaurant try La Crema Canela in the square Placa Reial just off Les Ramblas, great food, with drinks half the price of anywhere else in the area. Would use the hotel again but not for the facilities, just a place to lay our heads.

The best thing about my stay was...

Fantastic City, with great views from the 25th floor

Brill Hotel

2nd stay at the princess, great hotel very clean, friendly staff. Watch out for a couple of things I paid 30 euro to get to hotel from airport going back I put aside 30 euro only to be charged 41 Euros think I was ripped of by taxi driver. Don't venture to Ginos Italian above the mall the wine was like vinegar and the food was not freshly prepared.
